Paris Saint-Germain have included Marco Verratti, Javier Pastore and Kevin Trapp in their travelling squad for Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final with Manchester City.
After the last draw with Manchester City, PSG is trying to bring best squad in second leg on this coming Wednesday. These three players have injury but it appears manager Laurent Blanc wants to assess the fitness of each before making a final decision and has decided to bring an extended party of 24 players.
Verratti, widely seen as PSG’s most important player, has been struggling with a groin injury that kept him out of last month’s last-16 tie with Chelsea.
And attacking-midfielder Pastore is nearing a recovery from his latest calf problem.
After Wednesday’s 2-2 draw, Blanc neither Verratti or Pastore would travel because of fitness concerns – but he admitted on Friday that the pair had a “small chance” of being involved.
